    I would say, because it did indeed used to be a boy's name, that you could make it work if it was really important to you--but you definitely have to want it bad enough to weather the confusion and...

    While they are both important, I always look at meaning first--not just dictionary definition, but it's history, namesakes, etc. Then, I'll choose a name that I like the sound of from the list of...

    To each their own, I guess, but there are thousands of Lilys, Roses, and Violets out there that say it is perfectly tasteful to give children nature names. Virtually every culture in the world uses...

    I think you get a lot of leeway with middle names, and you could be a lot cheesier and cutesier than nature names. I am on the crunchy side (and I think your hubby and mine would get along!), but I...

    Marianne hasn't made a comeback yet, but that doesn't mean it isn't ready for it. I think it fits well with the new wave of Evelyns and Eleanors.

    I think a lot of men don't pay much attention to the baby names they hear around them. In all likelyhood, he probably thinks that little Evelyn or Olivia would be teased for their unusual names....

    Thanks! Jonah is back on my list now. It was a top contender for baby #1, then disappeared for the next 4. I've always liked Peter, but I don't think it would fit with our current sibset. I want to...

    Thanks for your input!

    I've never heard anyone say that Magdalena sounded "drama queen". Is it the 4 syllables? We have a one-syllable last name, so long names don't sound as long on us. Ending...
